Hi all,
I thought I'd start a thread here devoted to online Indigenous Studies resources. Post your suggestions by replying below (briefly describing, if you can, what the site offers and the ways it might be useful)!

Hi everyone,

I am including a link to Indegenous Canada: University of Alberta: https://www.ualberta.ca/admissions-programs/online-courses/indigenous-canada/index.html

"Indigenous Canada is a twelve module course that explores Indigenous histories and contemporary issues in Canada. The course explores issues important for understanding past and current relationships between Indigenous and settler societies" (University of Alberta: Faculty of Native Studies, 2015). Topics include but are not limited to worldview, the fur trade, treaties, sovereign lands, legal systems and rights, residential schools, concepts of gender, environmental impact, current social movements, and contemporary Indigenous art expressions as 'spaces' for political activism and resistance. This course helped me to fill in gaps in my knowledge and understanding. As a primer/introductory course, it has done well to bridge the past and the present. I highly recommend it. You can take this course for free, get a certificate, or you can take it for credit.

Be well, Jodi

My colleague from Carelton, Dr. Zoe Todd, a Metis anthropologist from the Edmonton region, is going to be putting her now-online course materials for free on her website. The course is INDG 2015: Ecological Ways of Knowing the site is: https://fishphilosophy.org/fall-term-course-site/. Dr. Todd's research focuses on human-animal and human-environmental interactions with particular focus on people, fish, and subsequent migrations.

I've taken the U of Alberta course and can attest to its excellence; great resource!
Looking forward to checking out Dr. Todd's site -- we might, I reckon, try to start some spin-off discussions here...

Hi folks: the Indigenous Studies Portal from the U of Saskatchewan offers a nice gateway to a lot of resources. You can find it here: https://iportal.usask.ca/. Cheers, kit
